The League of Amazing Programmers, a Carmel Valley-based nonprofit, recently received a $61,191 grant from The San Diego Foundation, as one of 10 programs that strengthen the city’s innovation economy by creating more opportunities for students in underserved communities pursuing STEM careers. The grant will support the League’s Tech Workforce Program, which provides workforce experience days, classes, and career events to middle and high school students, as well as establishing an internship pipeline for high school students to enter the workforce. “We are beyond delighted for The San Diego Foundation to recognize our nonprofit,” said Becky Deller, the League’s Director of Community Engagement. “These programs are life-changing for some of these students.”

Other grant recipients included the Elementary Institute of Science, Ocean Discovery Institute, The Maritime Alliance Foundation, San Diego Mesa College, and California State University San Marcos Foundation, among others, totaling $632,934 in grants.
